There they go again.

The Associated Press, Mediaite and CNN are aghast — aghast! ----  that President Trump’s White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway is supposedly playing politics in the White House.



Just recently, the CNN show United Shades of America’s fourth episode of season four ostensibly about the abortion debate. Students for Life of America was invited by the show to come down to Jackson, Mississippi for a day of filming. Unfortunately, the episode showed why CNN has a reputation for fake news.  



If you think the news media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is out of control, look at what’s happening in Hollywood. We already know celebrities still haven’t processed Donald Trump’s shocking victory. The unconventional president “broke” a crush of stars, and the list is growing.



A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn't look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said "hate speech" should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should. In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether "hate speech" is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. The Thought Police are gaining ground.

With his latest blockbuster, Unfreedom of the Press, Mark Levin presents a unique indictment of the liberal media today — something I doubted could be done, given the plethora of material already written on this subject. It is sweepingly comprehensive, covering the history of the American press from before the nation's founding through modern times, yet accessibly succinct — 226 pages, excluding the acknowledgments and notes.



Two videos mocking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were hot topics heading into Memorial Day weekend. One distorted and slowed down a Pelosi speech at the Center for American Progress to create the impression she was drunk. The other one was an edited package of Pelosi’s very real verbal blunders and stammers that aired on Fox Business.

The favorite leftist tool for the attack on our nation's founding is that slavery was sanctioned. They argue that the founders disregarded the promises of our Declaration of Independence “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”



Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the release of self-admitted “American Taliban” member John Walker Lindh “unexplainable and unconscionable.” Lindh, who was paroled last Thursday from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, served 17 years of a 20-year sentence for illegally aiding Taliban forces. Lindh had joined the terrorist organization before September 11, 2001. He was in Afghanistan at the time and was also there when a group of Taliban prisoners murdered CIA officer Johnny Micheal Spann.
